The Symbolism of Border Walls

In her exhibit Smoke Bombs and Border Crossings, on display in East Gallery of the Albany Museum of Art, photographer Nancy Newberry merges documentary portrayals with dreamlike creations to investigate notions of nationalism and community with her playful, symbolic images of Mexican charros, American cowboys and military groups at the Texas-Mexico border. Join us for a discussion of the importance of symbolism in Newberry’s photographs with a panel moderated by AMA Executive Director Dr. Andrew Wulf. Contact: Annie Vanoteghem at 229.439.8400 or email
